Ah yes, this can't work, I didn't think about capabilities.

The problem I wanted to solve: having decoder modules that depend on a
specific packetizer. This could simplify dts/a52 packetizers/decoder

With some format, both the A52 packetizer and the A52 decoder are used
and are doing exactly the same thing. One solution is to have the a52
decoder depending on the A52 packetizer and don't re-packetize in the
decoder callbacks.
